The three biggest problems with bedding for small pets
like hamsters, guinea pigs, rats, mice, or reptiles are: odor control, liquid absorption, and disposal options. Bedding smells build up quickly. Not only does it smell bad, it is also bad for your pet because it contains ammonia. Past a certain point, your pet's bedding becomes an incredibly harsh place to live in because of the invisible but nasty ammonia gas its emitting.
Similarly, liquid waste can pile up quickly too. This type of waste must be absorbed efficiently by the bedding without your pet's home becoming soggy, smelly, and mildewy. Finally, bedding must be quickly, safely, and easily disposed. Not all beddings can address the issues raised above. While some may be highly absorbent, they may harm the environment once you try to dispose of them. Others are great at removing odors but aren't very absorbent.
Beddings made of wood shavings are also out because not only do they perform the actions above with mediocre results, many wood shaving beddings have aromatic vapors which might pose serious health risks for your pets. Also, many wood shaving beddings aren't filtered thoroughly and might have uncomfortable splinters that irritate your pet's eyes or skin. There is a better alternative.
